I had an enlightened experience at a skate shop today while buying Krooked Kronicles. I have ignored the skateboarding films for too long now, and I often forget how much they have actually helped me. So today I decided to base a tape around them.
There is a something about music on skateboarding films, and that, unlike your average film, there is NO promise of the list of music in the credits. For me, it's usually a google death hunt of searching lyrics and asking around.
I tried my hardest to not repeat films and just pick music based off of how well it worked out in said film, leading to good music being cut. I also chose more recent films (I'm pretty sure nothing pre-1991).

Geoff Rowley in Really Sorry, starting off slowwww. What seems "un-skateable" actually works out and makes you stop, think, and appreciate his riding. Even when he eats shit, I found it really hard to show emotion and take the kool-aid smile off of my face.

Track 1 from Frank Black
Length: 00:04:07
Year: 1993
Track Description:
Saying that I love Girl Skateboards and any association with them is not enough reasoning to include this song on this mix. I'm including it because the skating is amazing, the song is fast paced, and other than Marc Johnson and his Joy Division, the song matches up extremely well with Koston. Oh, and it's from Yeah Right!
